"You've Been Picked" Party

Last week some friends and I threw a "You've Been Picked" party for our friends Lindsay and Ryan. They have been picked as adoptive parents to a little boy due in November! We could not be more excited for them and felt the need to celebrate. They are going to be amazing parents and this little baby is already so loved. You can read about their adoption journey here.

Here is Ryan and Lindsay being surprised!

I just wanted to share some of the party details with you!

For dinner we had a baked potato bar. I bought the potatoes at Costco and they were HUGE! But the perfect size to stuff with; BBQ chicken, chili, cheese, sour cream, chives, butter and bacon. We also had fruit salad and rolls from Texas Roadhouse. The rolls are super yummy and you can purchase them by the dozen. Dessert we had chocolate cake.

As a gift we all pitched in on gift cards for Southwest Airlines. We can't wait for them to fly over to California and bring that little baby home!

And as something extra special we put together a paper chain. One link for everyday until baby is due. On each link was written a piece of advice, bible verse, prayer, quote, or special thought for Ryan and Lindsay from each of their friends.

Lindsay is going to be such a great mom! Her friend Renee made her this wrap and she is trying it out on Kai!
